Earlier today the official S/mileage Youtube site uploaded a video of the new S/mileage member auditions.
The video features about 10 minutes of shots of the many applicants who were lined up for the audition, as well as a surprise appearance by S/mileage showing their support and encouraging them to do their best. Apart from a small comment from S/mileage we also get to see footage of some of the girls auditioning as well as some short interviews by the cameraman.
For the most part it’s a great video for S/mileage fans to look at since the future 5th member (or more) could have appeared in the footage, and while it’s too early to say so for sure the many applicants who appeared each had their unique charms that will most likely make fans root for them.
I was actually a bit surprised to see the great variety of girls that appeared and while there were a few who didn’t show off that much energy there were a few notable members that appeared, such as the twins (895 and 896) and girl #801 who seemed like they would make interesting additions to the group, but since we only saw about a dozen or so girls clearly it’s somewhat hard to say for sure how they did compared to the others.
The video also shows off a few girls dancing and since choreography will be a big part of being a S/mileage member I am glad that we get to see it since we can see for ourselves who did a good job, but most of the rest of the video features a Tsunku interview where he answers a few questions in front of the camera so there’s only about 4 minutes and 30 seconds of the actual girls.
For the most part most of the girls seemed to be very comfortable in front of the camera like the twins who chatted quite a lot of time and seemed to have a great personality as well as the #801 girl who looks like she could be a great member or Egg, but I’m looking forward to finding out more about the audition and who passed since it seems like there is quite a lot of talent in the applicants.
Tsunku has done a great job selecting members for other groups so I trust that he will select an interesting and energetic member, but for now all we can do is check out the video and hope that more footage is released soon.
